OPERATION OF SAFETY 

The sliding cross-butlon type safety It located in the forward portii>n of the tHg^r 
guard and may br operated only when the hammer is cocked. On one end oi ihe 
safety their is' a red band: when this is e^cpow-d it indicates dan^r i.c, lhc gun 
will fire when the trigger is pulled. 

Another way to remember thr operation ol the safety is as follows: // the Wrty 
15 engaged (hammer-locked) the ^hotjirr will liive to make two deliberate move- 
ments with his forefinger m order to fire the pin, Fir^t he will press the ^aftty to 
disengage it, then srcondk move his finger hack to the trigger and it will be noted 
that thj? release of the safety ran br performed a5 the gun is ral:>^ to the ahouldcr 
without disturbing the position of the hand on the grip of the stock (cwsumangj oi 
couTtf, that the ^hooter is right-handed).

gripping tlie slide by the portion which lies under the barrel and it the same 
timr and with thr sanie hand holding the reeoiF spring to avoid ^iudden 
expansion. 

.1_ Rrar rnd of thr slide may ihen be moved out of engagement with the receiver 
and hnll. lliis motion will also lift the rear end of the maga:tinr tubp from its 
wai in the receiver and release the recoil ^prinft which wilf then be free to 
e^cpsnd suddenly. The slide handle will also fall clear of its seat in ihe upper 
rearward part of the slidCr The forward end of ihe inaRuine tube will fall clear 
«f it^ anchorage OH the cylinder block and all tbue a^mponealj will then be 
clear of ihe barrel and receiver.
